EHFF signs contract with Robert Bosch Stiftung for project on barriers to involvement of end-users in eHealth product development
We are delighted to report that the bid from EHFF has been accepted by RBS and the project began on Nov.23 and will run through to next summer. In essence Nick Guldemond of UMC Utrecht and the EHFF Community and David Somekh of EHFF, after some desk-top research, will convene a two-day colloquium in Berlin, scheduled for mid-February 2016, to discuss the barriers to user engagement in product design and development and potential solutions. The concept is that a position paper or report will be produced that will then be the subject of a session at the Commission eHealth week in early June, in Amsterdam. Currently we have an impressive group of more than 20 experts representing different stakeholder groups who have agreed to attend in February and we are in process of negotiating with Commission officials over the eHealth week presentation. RBS have helpfully offered their Berlin Offices for the colloquium and our project manager from Bosch is Martina Kaplanek.
